Volunteers Needed to Serve as Bon Secours Washington Redskins Richmond Training Camp Ambassadors


The City of Richmond’s Neighbor-To-Neighbor initiative and the Washington Redskins are looking for a core group of 100 volunteers to be Richmond Training Camp Ambassadors. Ambassadors will volunteer for one of two time slots per day, either 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. or from noon to 6 p.m., throughout the four week training camp period. The training camp will begin on July 25 and conclude on August 16. The Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center is located at 2401 West Leigh Street.

“Richmond Training Camp Ambassadors will help put the best face on our city and its many amenities as they assist visitors and showcase the very best the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Camp has to offer,” said Mayor Dwight C. Jones.

When Richmond Training Camp Ambassadors work a certain benchmark number of shifts, they will be rewarded based on the following scale:

Three shifts worked receive a Washington Redskins Pin;
  • Five shifts worked receive a 2nd Washington Redskins Pin;
  • Seven shifts worked receive the opportunity to attend an autograph session with Redskin players and coaches;
  • Ten shifts worked receive a trip for the Richmond Training Camp Ambassador plus one guest to attend a Washington Redskins home game to include bus transportation;
  • Twelve or more shifts worked receive a trip for the Richmond Training Camp Ambassador plus one guest to attend a Washington Redskins home game to include bus transportation, plus the opportunity to be part of a special on-field pre-game presentation


Preference will be given to individuals who can commit to volunteer to higher number of shifts. To register or to obtain a complete list of details about this fantastic volunteer opportunity, interested individuals should visit www.richmondgov.com/NeighborToNeighbor.
